but with Windows 8 Metro flashiness, they seem to be going after Apple's stronghold on the consumer
Windows 8 also contains incremental improvements across many aspects of the OS, and has performance and boot improvements, so there is no reason enterprise customers wont choose Windows 8 on new systems. Isnt Windows also a stronghold with the consumer? The (almost) 500 million Windows 7 sold, were not all to enterprise.It's kludgy, and you need twice the speed and four times the RAM of a Mac just so you don't feel like you are wading through molasses.
Maybe once upon a time, but I find Windows 7 runs on older hardware in a smoother way than any version of OSX. Windows 8 further reduces the performance foothold, requiring only slightly more than a few hundred megabyte of RAM. Most systems have at least 4GB these days, RAM is so cheap (well at least if your not getting an Apple system), I have 16GB in current system. But had no issues with my previous 4GB system.
major problems with Vista - the clusterfuck that is Control Panel, the ugly and distracting interface - have carried right over to Windows 7
Control panel may not be integrated into one user interface. But then you only have to start typing the name of something, and your taken right to the option you need. I use search 95% of the time to find the options I wont to change, and in my opinion the grouping of certain settings works well. I do believe Windows naturally has more settings/options to adjust, so requires a greater number of screen and groups than Mac OSX. The only time System Preferences on OSX has been superior to Windows, was during the XP era. I really dislike the flat view, with no categories, which can still be activated in Win 7.Windows is dying. It will take a long while to clear out the carcasses but death is unavoidable. i have totally removed Windows and Office from my personal existence. if companies have money they should go with Apple. If not, then Linux.
Mac OSX is dying. It will take a long while to clear out the carcasses but death is unavoidable. i have totally removed OSX and iWork from my personal existence. If companies have money they should go with Microsoft. If not, then Linux.
The Corsair Obsidian 650D is a nicer looking case
, yeah I agree that Silverstone case doesnt appeal to me at all. But the Mac Pro just looks so bulky and cluttered on the inside, dense with boxy subdivisions, and a design that hasnt changed for eons in the tech industry. I like the Corsair 650D case because it has a clean, subtle design, with excellent build quality and unique features, like hot swappable drive bay, tool-less and excellent cooling.
